[CONNECT] Area tool

Is there any tool in Microstation Connect like Atool in Version V8?

  • Hi Katja,

    For the moment there is not such a separate tool in the CONNECT Edition.
    As an alternative, you could consider using Text Fields in combination with the information that is in the Element information:

    1.Select the shape you want to measure/place the area of.
    2.Open Element Info.
    3.Open Place Text Tool.
    4.Drag the Area property from Element Info and drop it into Word Processor you want to place as fields.
    5.Place the field in View Window.

    In the Text Preferences (File>Settings) you can switch off/hide the grey background of the resulting text.
    The benefit of using Text Fields instead of the tools you had in the V8i Area Tools is that the Area information will automatically update when the size of the element you have measured changes.

    An older article related to Fields may give you an idea of how this works:

    Let me know, if this works for you.
